Advance Information (Core Maths and FSMQ)
To support student revision, we'll be providing advance information about the focus of content within a specification to be assessed in summer 2022. This will be communicated by 7 February 2022, in advance of the exams, and will apply to the majority of subjects at GCSE, AS and A Level as well as Core Maths and Free Standing Maths Qualification (FSMQ)
Extra Formulae sheet (FSMQ only)
We have published an extra formulae sheet for Level 3 FSMQ: Additional Mathematics 6993. Teachers and students can now use this as part of their preparations for the 2022 assessments.
To make sure students are familiar with the data sheet prior to the exam, teachers can use it in teaching and mock assessments now. The extra sheet only applies to the 2022 examination series and students will be given a clean printed copy in the exam.
Why is there an extra formulae sheet for the FSMQ: Additional Mathematics (6993) assessment in 2022?
The extra formulae sheet for FSMQ is one of the changes to 2022 assessments to support students.
The formulae that are provided as standard for FSMQ (i.e. expansion of the binomial series, binomial distribution, trapezium rule and the kinematics formulae for variable and constant acceleration) will still be provided at the front of the question paper. This means:
- You can use our practice papers and past papers, with the extra formulae sheet, to give students a mock exam consistent with the question paper approach to be used this year
- Subsequent years will be able to use the 2022 paper, without the extra formulae, as part of their preparation.
The formulae included on the extra formulae sheet are the same as what is provided for Higher tier students in the 2022 GCSE (9–1) Maths exams.
